Four of the album’s tracks featured on their EP 'Flaws' released in March 2020.
#8: Slim Dusty ‘Slim & I’ – The soundtrack to the forthcoming documentary 'Slim & I' makes its Top 50 debut at #8. 'Slim & I' tells the story of the partnership between ARIA Hall Of Fame member Slim Dusty and his wife and long-time collaborator Joy McKean.
